The weather is finally picking up here in NYC and it’s getting hotttt so that means much more sunscreen (people always seem so worried when they see my pale Irish skin out in the sun here), I have such funny skin that I might tan sometimes or just burn! I’ll never know why haha!
For such a fashion-forward city, I am still surprised by how much black seems to be still the favourite colour here but with the summer finally here I’m starting to see more colours around… I could ‘people watch’ all day long just looking and admiring people’s outfits.
If you love black or monochrome but don’t want to wear your same work pants or jeans, I’ve recently fallen in love with plisse pants, they are just so comfortable and loose fitting is great too for the warmer weather. Also, you can dress them up for work or like I did on my Sunday to Brooklyn Bridge with my Cons:)
I got mine in Topshop but I also found other ones I liked from Urban Outfitters, Missguided and Polyvore.
I have never been more confused about what to wear in this city… it goes from two days of rain, then snow (which I must say was amazing it was like a WinterWonderland) and then sunshine! Also there is so much walking to be done here, just keep walking for hours and something new and exciting will be found:)
So, thankfully I changed into better ‘exploring’ clothes, the day I walked Brooklyn Bridge, in DoubleDenim from Topshop and a classic Adidas top underneath from ASOS, as I would have gotten so cold because as soon as the sunshine dissapeared so too did the warmth! It is one of the most beautiful spots in NYC and especially just to take a step back and view the whole city and realising how lucky that I am to be Here in this Crazy, Beautiful, Breath Taking (literally) city that is New York.
Plus you can never go wrong with some DoubleDenim right!?
